Thoughts aligned with God–not the stars

Are we just powerless little specks on the face of Infinity? Do we determine our destiny or does fate determine what we are? And do the planets figure in somewhere? Or are planetary pulls a question of our own belief and consent?

Not so many years ago, I was plagued by my horoscope. Not only was it often “on the money,” it was often lousy news. Predictions of relationship problems, failed business deals, and health issues regularly popped up under my astrological sign. And I was sick of it. Seriously—did I really want a heads-up that a real estate deal was going to fall through on the day my husband and I were to firm up a contract?

Although I told myself that I didn’t buy into astrological theory, that didn’t stop me from checking my daily horoscope. When our business deal fell through, that was a real wake-up call. Now I was mad. I didn’t like feeling that some random changeable influence could tug on my life. I felt pushed and pulled. So I prayed and engaged in spiritual study to gain a better understanding of control.
